Rare Studios, The Maker Of Popular Kinect Titles Such As Kinect Sports Is “Evaluating What They Want To Do Next”

UK based developer Rare which is the creative brain behind popular Kinect based titles such as Kinect Sports, Kinect Sports: Season Two and Kinect Sports Rivals still remains an important part of Microsoft despite Microsoft’s decision to unbundle Kinect from Xbox One. Talking to TotalXbox, Phil Spencer said that the studio is independent to chose their next project and they are “evaluating what they want to do next”.

“[Rare has] just come off the successful launch of Kinect Sports Rivals,” said Spencer. “I think I’ve heard a few times from people asking about Rare – they’re in the process of evaluating what they want to do next, and we’re working closely with them to see what their new project will be.

“And I’ve also laughed when people have tried to use the word, what I “force” them to do – if you’re around any independent studio, or like Rare a studio that’s independent-minded, you’ll know that forcing a studio to do something is never a successful equation. So they’re free to look at all different kinds of opportunities, they always have been, and we’re having a great time trying to work out with them what their next game might be, but we have nothing to announce right now.”

    So stupid, the Kinect should’ve never been unbundled. (>_<) prepare for fragmentation.

      Personally, if I do get an XBO I will get the Kinect but why can’t they just put an icon on the back of games showing that a Kinect is required (or some features aren’t available without it) for this particular title? Do they not do that anymore? You know, like how some games might require a guitar controller or a gun?

      People who are afraid of the Kinect just won’t be able to play those games (or get the most out of them). Or they can pay more to add it later.
